I started using Keepass yesterday and it's really useful however I cannot find a way to add wildcard into the url...

I want one key being used on all url(s) that met the following rule:


Then surfing to:


will automatically fill user/password...

How can I obtain that?

Original poster, are you using KeeFox plugin ? ( If not, it's advisable because it will solve your issue. )

A solution that worked for me was :

  1. install Firefox web browser, this does not work in Chrome or Iexplore as far as I know
  2. install KeeFox plugin and ensure it works with keepass on some test website like gmail.com
  3. in URL field, enter : domain_name.ext
  4. in KeeFox tab -> URLs tab enter: ^.*.domain_name.ext/.* -> Regular expression ticked, Match ticked
  5. test. Worked for me.

Something like ^.*foo.com.* will match foo.com, http://foo.com/bar, https://www.foo.com, etc - ^ matches start, . matches any character, and * matches zero or more of the previous. –  bburns.km Aug 5 '14 at 3:40
@BrianBurns that also matches barfoo.com –  dube Mar 3 at 9:12
@dube Yeah, and I guess ^.* is kind of redundant - i.e. do either ^foo or .*foo. –  bburns.km Mar 3 at 17:21

I don't know about a wildcard solution but you can use references to re-use the username and/or password from one key in another.

You'd have to set up a key for each URL once but you'd only have to maintain the credentials in the master key.

See http://keepass.info/help/base/fieldrefs.html for more details.

Another thing that may match what you are looking for closer is how auto-type matches the window, look at http://keepass.info/help/base/autotype.html. If the different URL's contain the same title auto-type might work on all of them.
